Today’s Topic- “HOW WE SPEAKS”
LARYNX also Known As Natural “VOICE BOX” or “SOUNDBOX” is Responsible For All the types of sounds Produced Through The Way of Your Mouth.
Your Tongue, Teeth, Vestibule , Teeth and Lips Has also Great Additional Role in All types of Words Or Sounds You Produces.
The lining of the larynx has folds across it about halfway down. These are known as the ventricular folds or Vestibular Folds also called FALSE VOCAL CORDS.
Looking into the larynx from above, they look a little like curtains that have been drawn open slightly.
The vocal cords run along their edges. The gap between the two vocal cords is called the glottis.
By using ligaments and muscles, the vocal cords can be opened and closed, tensed and held together closely – which looks like the curtains being closed.
When we breathe out, air flows through the gap between the vocal cords. Depending on their exact position, this causes them to vibrate in different ways, resulting in different tones.
Together with the movements of the tongue and mouth, very different sounds can be produced at different volumes, allowing us to speak and sing.
In childhood, the vocal cords of boys and girls are equally long. The larynx grows during puberty. This makes the vocal cords longer, lowering the voice – there is a noticeable “breaking” of the voice, especially in boys.
Men have a considerably larger larynx than women do, which is why men typically have a deeper voice.
